Chapter 1: 3rd move sideline:

3.d4 e5!? 4.dxe5

 

3.d4 e5 4. Nf3 Nc6

 

3. Nf3/Be2

Van Den Doel game - delayed Nc3.

 

The Forced Draw.

 

The inferior 3.Nf3/Be2/h3 - Nakamura and Vachier

 

 

Chapter 2: 5th move sidelines.

1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd6 4.d4 c6?! is dubious because of the game Bologan - Tiviakov in which White played 5.Ne4!

Thats why, we will play 4...Nf6.

5.Nb5 Qb6 6.d5

 

5.Nb5 Qb6 6.c4

5.Nge2  - is the variation that Tim Taylor fears the most (Bartel - Tiviakov)

 

5. Be2 (Nijboer)

 

5.Bd3 Nc6 (The Exception! - Black tries the direct method).

 

 

5. Bc4 c6 6.Nge2 Bg4!

 

Chapter 3: Sixth Move Sidelines
6.h3 Bf5 7.g4. Sulskis - Tiviakov
6.h3 Bf5 7.Bd3 (Inarkiev - Tiviakov)
6. Bc4 (Lewandowski - Tiviakov)
6. Bd3 Bg4 7.Be3 e6 8.h3 Bh5 9.Qd2 (Huschenbeth - Tiviakov)
6. Bd3 Bg4 7.Be3 e6 8.h3 Bh5 9.Qe2 (Bojkov, Dejan - Tiviakov)
6.Be2 Bf5 7.Be3 (Shamsi - Tiviakov)
6.be2 Bf5 7.Bg5 (Postolachi - Tiviakov)
6.Be3 Bf5 7.Ne5 (vega gutierrez - tiviakov)
6.Bg5 Bg4 (Glek - Tiviakov)
6.g3 Bf5 7.Bg2 e6 8.0-0 h6 9.Ne5 Be7 10.Bf4 Qd8 11.g4 Bh7
A. 12.h3 Nbd7 13.Qe2 Nxe5 14.dxe5 Nd5 15.Nxd5 exd5 (unclear but OK for Black).
B. 12.h4 Nfd7 13.Nc4 Nb6 14.Na5 Qd7 15.Ne4 ( Nadimifar - Tiviakov).
Chapter 4: Mainlines
6.Ne5 Nbd7 7.f4 (Wan Yunguo - Tiviakov) (instructive Rook endgame)
7.Bf4 Nd5 8.Bg3  (Mastrovasils - Tiviakov)
7.Bf4 Nd5 8.Nxd5 Qxd5 9.Be2 (Anand - Tiviakov)
7.Bf4 Nd5 8.Nxd5 Qxd5 9.Qf3 (Robson - Tiviakov)
7.Bf4 Nd5 8.Nxd5 Qxd5 9.Nf3 (Ivanchuk - Tiviakov)
7.Nc4 Qc7 8.a4 (Naiditsch - Tiviakov)
7.Nc4 Qc7 8.a4 (Polgar - Tiviakov)
7.Nc4 Qc7 8.g3 (Eggert - Tiviakov)
7.Nc4 Qc7 8.Be2 (Kochetkova - Tiviakov)

7.Nc4 Qc7 8.Qf3 Nb6 9.Bf4 Qd7 10.Be5 (Swiercz - Tiviakov)
We absolutely need to play 12. Bd7 in the line:
7.Nc4 Qc7 8.Qf3 Nb6 9.Bf4 Qd7 10.0-0-0 Qg4 11.Qxg4 Bxg4 12.f3 Bd7
7.Nc4 Qc7 8.Qf3 Nb6 9.Bf4 Qd7 10.Nxb6 axb6 11.0-0-0 e6 12.Be5 Nd5 13.Bc4 f6 14.Bg3 Bb4 15.Ne4 0-0 16.Bb3 f5 17.Nd2 f4 18.Bh4 h6 (Unclear).
